Please do not blam this song just because it doesn't sound so professional for the voices. I tried the best I could in Garageband and I wrote the background song and the actual rap part of it myself. If you can't understand the lyrics in the song here they are, pay attention to them because they are what make this song from my soul. The lyrics have all the meaning about our economy right now. Thank you.

I'd rather sing about the red stripes and white stars
Than life with the lights and money and cars
Because we're livin' in a bad economy
And people are starvin' on lonely streets
And the times will creep up on you like a ghost
Take your money and your life when you need it the most
Cause times are hard and they just getting' harder
And I've mentioned a lot but this is just a starter
And this isn't something you can brush away like tartar
Seriously this ain't no laughing matter
Cause people are sadder and madder than ever
Bush should've lost his job be he just stayed
Made money matters worse with days and days
And all our problems grew like our age
It wouldn't stop, got worse as time goes on
So that's why I wanted to write this song
It'll get awfully dark before the light goes on
People may say we're going into a depression
I say we have- look people are expressin' their expression and yes it's depression
I'm not messin' not trying to get in your head like a poet
Cause we'll be long gone and dead before you know it, it's hopeless
So wave goodbye like the ocean, cause it's cold and people are lonely
This is no time to sit, spit rhymes of fortune and fame
You better make a swish in this basketball game, of life
Cause if you snipe the rim the lights will dim, it'll spin it won't go in
Don't sing about how much money you have when some people have none
A war is taking place and you're singing about YOUR guns?
Take a rest, then go ahead and try to run, cause I'm done, I've sung, my lungs are out of breath
It doesn't take much skill to want to fix this whole mess
I just needed a heart in my chest and a little bit of soul left
